Math Notation Help

This glossary will help you build complex mathematical equations using the Tex markup language. This will involve using @@ or $$before and after the expression to display the desired results.  All categories Categories All categories Not categorized 01 Getting started 02 Arithmetic expressions, sub-/superscripts, roots 03 Font Styles 04 Delimiters (parentheses, braces,...) 05 Spaces 06 Symbols 07 Relations 09 Structures Page: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 (Next) ALL 01 GETTING STARTED escaping the TeX filter • With two triple 's embracing an expression you can make the filter to escape and the code itself is shown (with two embracing double 's). • Ex.:$$$a^2$$produces$$a^2$$, i.e. prevents the filter to render it as a formula gif.  Keyword(s): escape; suppress filter; prevent from filtering mathematics expression • A valid expression inside the 's is rendered as mathematics in an inserted gif image. • Ex.:$$x=y^2$$creates $x=y^2$  Keyword(s): mathematics expression triggering the TeX filter • Two double 's embracing a valid math expression trigger the filter to generate and insert the formula gif. • Ex.:$$a^2$$produces $a^2$  Keyword(s): trigger, TeX filter, start filter 02 ARITHMETIC EXPRESSIONS, SUB-/SUPERSCRIPTS, ROOTS arithmetic operations • Type arithmetic operations and "=" as usual. • Exp.:$$f(x)=x-2b+(3a/c)$$gives $f(x)=x-2b+(3a/c)$ • See also keyword "fraction" for extended capabilities. constants • Numbers in formulas are interpreted as constants and they are rendered in non-italic roman font face, which is a widely used convention. • Following this convention, variables are shown in italic. • Exp.:$$f(x)=3a+x$$gives $f(x)=3a+x$ multiplication (with cdot)$$a\cdot~b$$gives $a\cdot~b$  Keyword(s): cdot root • Syntax: \sqrt[n]{arg} or simply \sqrt{arg} for \sqrt[2]{arg} • Ex.:$$\sqrt[3]{8}$$gives $\sqrt[3]{8}$ • Ex.:$$\sqrt{-1}$$gives $\sqrt{-1}$ • Nesting of roots (and combining with fractions, ...etc.) are possible. • Ex.:$$\sqrt[n]{\frac{x^n-y^n}{1+u^{2n}}}$$gives $\sqrt[n]{\frac{x^n-y^n}{1+u^{2n}}}$ • Ex.:$$\sqrt[3]{-q+\sqrt{q^2+p^3}}$$gives $\sqrt[3]{-q+\sqrt{q^2+p^3}}$  Keyword(s): square root variables • Variables in formulas are rendered in italic roman font face, which is a widely used convention. • Following this convention, constants are shown as non-italic. • Exp.:$$f(x)=3a+x$$gives $f(x)=3a+x$ 03 FONT STYLES \LARGE (all capital letters) • Everthing following the \LARGE command will be output in the largest predefined font size until the system encounters another font size command. • Note: This command is case sensitive, since large, Large and LARGE are different sizes! • Ex.:$$\LARGE~3x$$gives $\LARGE~3x$  Keyword(s): font size, \Large (L capital letter) • Everthing following the \Large command will be output in the second largest font size until the system encounters another font size command. • Note: This command is case sensitive, since large, Large and LARGE are different sizes! • Ex.:$$\Large~3x$\$ gives $\Large~3x$
 Keyword(s): font size,
